Friday, March 24, 2017, the Republican controlled House of Representatives failed to pass the American Health Care Act after promising supporters that political world is still trying to figure out what this means for healthcare and politics moving forward.
US Representative Martha Roby (R-Montgomery) supported the bill. On Monday, Congresswoman Roby emailed her constituents, “A lot has happened since I last emailed. You’ve probably been following the House of Representatives’ progress to repeal and replace Obamacare. Last week Republicans had a great opportunity to deliver on a promise we’ve made to the American people for seven years. I’m really disappointed that the American Health Care Act (ACHA) was withdrawn and that I did not have a chance to be a voice for the people I serve.”
